Life

You only live once

Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury

Few years ago I saw a Hindi movie “Zindagi na milegi dobara” (Meaning-You only get to live once). In this movie three friends take a trip together in which each one chooses a adventure sport which all three of them have to do together. One chooses scuba diving, second one sky diving and third one bull run. In this journey they conquer their fears, mend fences, heal wounds and fall in love with life.

Movie ends with beautiful poem urging us to fall in love with life…..(Shared below for my readers alongwith meaning in English)

Dilon mein tum apni
Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum

If you are moving
with an eagerness in your heart,
then you are alive..

Nazar mein khwabon ki
Bijliyaan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum

if you’re moving
with the sparks of dreams in your eyes,
then you’re alive..
Hawa ke jhokon ke jaise
Aazad rehna seekho
Tum ek dariya ke jaise
Lehron mein behna seekho

learn to live freely
like the gusts of wind,
Learn to flow in waves,
like a river does..
Har ek lamhe se tum milo
Khole apni baahein
Har ek pal ek naya sama
Dekhen yeh nigahaein

Meet every moment
with your arms open,
Every moment these eyes should
watch a new weather
Jo apni aankhon mein
Hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum

If you’re moving with
a bewilderment in your eyes
then you are alive,
Dilon mein tum apni
Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum

If you are moving
with an eagerness in your heart,
then you are alive..

I am soon planning to go on my first solo adventure trip, will write about it once I am back….😎😎
